 Last week we went on a culinary adventure that was part of Sunset Magazine's, Savor The Central Coast event. The Secret Tomato Garden Lunch was held in the chefs gardens of Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort, a beautiful area near Avila Beach that is surrounded by oak covered hills and the rusted pylons that are part of the resorts future expansion.
